Certification – Quality

Introduction

Inspiring the confidence of customers and staff, breaking down barriers between departments and reaching defined business objectives are common goals of all businesses. A proven method of achieving these goals is through the implementation and monitoring of a business focussed and dynamic Quality Management System.  Certification to ISO 9001 Quality Management System is the world’s most recognised business management standard.quality

ISO 9001 Quality Management System have been adopted across all industry types, from manufacturing through professional service organisations covering all sized companies from a sole trade to multinational conglomerations.The Quality Management System assists organisations to achieve consistent business processes and drive measurable, cost-saving performance improvements.

ISO 9001 Quality Management System does not define a business process; rather it defines business outcomes.The processes by which these outcomes are achieved are defined by the organisation, based on the organisation’s business needs. ISO 9001 Quality Management System is not a “one size fits all” template; each and every system should be organisational-specific based on the operational requirements of the business. DAS Certification (AS/NZ) prides itself on working with our clients to ensure your Quality Management System fits your business rather than a consultant’s template design. By understanding your business goals and culture, DAS Certification  (AS/NZ) is able to interpret your business processes in the light of the ISO 9001 outcomes rather that simply following an audit checklist. This approach is achieved by focussing on the business outcomes rather than the processes involved.

Your Route to Certification

Enquiry and Free Estimate

Following your enquiry, DAS Certification will provide you with an obligation free quote.
On acceptance of our quote, DAS Certification will ask that you complete our application form and Memorandum of Understanding.

Once the application has been processed, DAS Certification will contact you to start the certification process, agree dates for the Stage 1 Audit and assign an Auditor who will liaise directly with you to finalise the audit arrangements.

Stage 1 Audit

The Stage 1 Audit (part of which is generally conducted on site) provides a focus for planning the Main Audit.  We review documentation specific to your business and work with your staff to quickly resolve any problems.

Main Audit Visit

The Main Audit measures the effectiveness of the Quality Management System in managing your quality requirements, products, processes and services.

The audit is carried out alongside your own people, with results and findings openly discussed and reviewed. At the end of the audit, a report is prepared for acknowledgement and acceptance by your Company Representative. Any corrective actions arising from the audit are discussed and any forward plan of work agreed, including a follow-up visit if needed.

Certification Approval and Surveillance Programme

When your Quality Management System complies with ISO 9001, a certificate of approval is issued which is valid for three years, subject to satisfactory on-going maintenance of your Quality Management System. Verification is through an audit programme that is carried out by yearly surveillance visits organised to fit in with your business schedule.

Three-yearly Reassessment Visit

  • Every three years, your Quality Management System needs to be reassessed.
  • Following satisfactory reassessment, your certificate is reissued for a further three years.
